Having been on a plane 4 times this weekend (seeing that the risk is at departure and landing there were eight risky moments) I got really used to it. Especially since the Lufthansa staff was really nice. But to be honest, though I enjoy flying a lot I'm still always quiet happy to be back on ...

... views of the whole city! We spent a long while walking around the park and found a huge lake, which was frozen solid, so we had fun 'ice skating’ a little at the edge. We took the U-Bahn back to the city centre and towards the Miniatur Wunderland, which we weren’t expecting to be all that amazing, as it is a model railway. Wow, we were wrong! The centre is set out in different countries, and there are over 215,000 little tiny figures living in a ...
... together, clean together, eat together and watch a movie together. It is a family night away from home. I suppose it is fair to ask, "What is family night without a little vino?" We eat, we drink and we feel like a family while we are thousands of miles away from home.
Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Atlantic Kempinski Hamburg
We booked a "great" deal with Expedia and after a well earned weekend away were very much looking forward to our trip....
Excellent value, top hotel
In my opinion this hotel represents excellent value for money for a quality hotel. All of the staff, (reception, consierge, room service, etc) are incredibly helpful and polite and seem to go out of their way to make sure the customer is happy. Maybe I'm just not used to this level of service coming from England!
Not so special
Stayed there from 8th to 10th of April 2006. Booked via lhw as being amember. Recieved room upgrade. Room was not renovated at all, pretty shabby.
Hotel staff is ok.
Sauna, Pool ok. Massages all overpriced, unprofessional staff there, one vene wore damaged clothes, took them 5 min. to reopen the safe at the SPA because its so old...
Food can be very good, asked about vegetarian food, not much on the menue, told them to do something for about 40.- Euro. That was the best part of my stay there.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in early December and found everything about the hotel to be comfortable and inviting. The rooms were very well appointed. We jokingly rate all hotels we've stayed at since as compared to this Kempinski. We were throughly impressed and would gladly stay here again in future.
We stayed for a weekend in the "Hans Albert Suite" which has a superb view over the Aussenalster and Hamburg itself. The Hotel was decorated in the style of the late 19th century and some parts seemed to be original. The hotel is located in the vicinity of the town centre and it takes only few minutes to the train station and airport.
Nice staff but stuffy hotel
The kempinski was fine, staff excellent, breakfast way above average. i probably wouldn't go again for two reasons. first, i would prefer to be somewhere either right in the centre (four seasons) - with cafes right next door and so on - or somewhere in a more beautful setting. second, i found the whole place slightly stuffy, it needs a bit of modernising and it all felt a little bit oppressive. room service took 45 minutes and this was at 1 in the morning when there couldn't have been too many other people ordering food and i was starving and tired.
Not a 5-star room!
Overall, this hotel is beautiful! The staff was very professional and courteous. However, our room badly needed to be refurbished. The carpet was stained, the wallpaper was peeling, and the furniture looked as though it had been purchased at various fleamarkets. Upon check-out, I filled out a questionnaire and left it with the front desk. Much to my surprise, I received a personal letter from the hotel manager several weeks later apologizing for my experience with the room. In addition, he informed me to contact him on a return visit for upgrades.
This is truly a gorgeous hotel! I hope that the room that we stayed in has since been updated.
We stayed at the Atlantic in October 2004 for a 3 night break. The hotel is very posh but the standard rooms do need a refurbishment. The staff where very polite. We found it very expensive to eat there and the bar was also expensive. The location of the hotel was ok a 15 minute walk to the town centre.
